Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C4H5N7, comprises two independent but virtually superimposable molecules. Each molecule is planar with the dihedral angles between the five-membered rings being 2.8 (3) and 2.1 (3)°. The crystal structure is formed by an extensive network of relatively strong N-HN hydrogen-bond interactions. Individual molecules are arranged into supramolecular zigzag chains running parallel to  by way of the strongest N-HN interactions. Adjacent chains are interconnected by rather long (DA distances range from ca 3.00 to 3.03 Å) but highly directional (interaction angles above ca 173°) hydrogen bonds forming a supramolecular layer in the bc plane.
